So who am I and what is 47 yards all about? I am a UK based huge NFL fan and have been for over 20 years now. It all started for me in the mid 1980s and a team called the New York Giants and a coach called Bill Parcells.

47 yards is, of course, the distance Scott Norwood missed the last second field goal from for the Buffalo Bills vs NYG in Super Bowl XXV and it is a stand out memory for me to this day (sorry Bills fans).

Anyway I am always talking NFL to friends and family where I can and the best time of year is without doubt September – February. I wanted to get some of my thoughts out there for people to read, comment on, agree, disagree and just generally engage with a wider audience on this great game. I’ll probably relate a lot of posts back to my beloved Giants, particularly given our current struggles, but will definitely look to appeal to fans of all teams and the sport as a whole as we go along.
